Live Radio metadata for 100+ stations incl. BBC, Radio France, FLAC radios and more

That’s too bad. Thanks for taking a look at it so quickly. I appreciate it.

I have added metadata for The Current 89.3 for you, in Beta mode. I had to use a non conventional scrapping technique so please monitor and report issues here.

WSS is ending up as a JSON text in the HTML, a bit tricky to scrap but feasible :slight_smile:
The Current has full metadata so covers will be displayable if Roon implements the feature. The station is present twice in our directory, I enabled metadata service for both.

“radio”: “thecurrent”,
“lastupdate”: “2023-03-03T16:10:24.056Z”,
“mode”: “song”,
“data”: {
“metadata”: “Nikki Lane - Denim And Diamonds”,
“title”: “Denim And Diamonds”,
“artist”: “Nikki Lane”,
“album”: “Denim and Diamonds”,
“cover”: “

FYI … elsewhere I have done all 7 - not efficient but works. You’ll see it in next beta @alec_eiffel

Thanks so much for making the metadata display work with the Current. It makes listening to this station from Roon possible for me now and the slight delay before the correct metadata is displayed is not a problem for me at all. If a future version of Roon does implement the album art feature in Live Radio as you mentioned in your next post, that would be even better still. Thanks again.

Prodded by this, I have added another four
Carbon Sound
Local Current
Rock the Cradle
The Siren

Purple Current and
Radio Heartland
already existed


The delay shouldn’t be long… I suspect this is due to the recent bugs in Roon regarding Live Radio metadata, which are not completely fixed see No metadata on streaming radio stations [Ticket In] - #20 by alec_eiffel

Thank you Paul. I have added Metadata for all 7 channels:

5 posts were split to a new topic: Chiliean radio station issues

Update Mar 17h, 2023

  • Added Forever La Radio (Bordeaux & Arcachon channels) [FLAC], has covers
  • Added Pure Lounge Radio [FLAC], no covers
  • Removed W1D4 and Lucifer FM (stations down for weeks)

Is this project responsible for me seeing all the metadata for BBC Radio1 broadcasts?

Pleading guilty!

It’s fabulous, thank you so much!

Scrolling back through this thread, I see BBC R1 was added last sept so I’m slow to show appreciation but I only listen to this station now and again. Having the metadata and then being able to add the track or album to my library from Quobuz is the #1 best feature for me in Roon.

I normally listen to Radio Paradise, where I am currently plagued (like others I see in the other thread) with the metadata not updating (or updating too slowly) when the tracks changes.

Any Blues Stations with metadata?

I’ve been trying to come up with a way of searching for a music category and a keyword, but I can’t think of one.

However, let me turn the question around - if you have a favourite blues station that doesnt have metadata let us know and we’ll endeavour to add it.

(In the meantime, perhaps some afficionados may suggest a station or two)

Bluesflac is a good one

Possible to add metadata for Jazz24?


Ahh, you’ve found a bug.

Some arrangement of .pls and .m3u8 streams were causing Roon to drop the metadata.

I’ve reassigned streams. Try now.

Working now. Thank you

Hmm, more testing shows it was just the presence of the .m3u8 stream that was the issue.

I’ll do some more tests and inform the Devs.
